Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera is a wand-like device with a camera at the end of it that we can maneuver around the mouth to see hard-to-reach areas in greater detail. The camera has the ability to capture live video footage and still images that we can use to diagnose small signs of oral health problems and utilize as an educational tool to explain what issues you may be facing. These are typically used during dental exams and can help us in the treatment planning process.

Digital X-Rays

Our digital dental X-ray imaging device works similar to a camera on your phone, allowing us to capture a picture of the area of your mouth that lies below the gumline. Not only does it produce a high-resolution image, but it’s also immediately viewable by our dentists, so you won’t have to wait for the image to be developed. This method of capturing dental X-rays is completely safe and minimizes radiation exposure to adults and children alike, making it an all-around better alternative than older film X-ray imaging systems.

3D Cone Beam Scanner

While a dental X-ray is excellent for getting a closer look at a few teeth, when we need to see the big picture, that’s when we use our 3D cone beam scanner. It’s able to create a detailed 3D map of your dental anatomy, including both rows of teeth, your jaws, and much more. It can help us establish a baseline for your oral health at your first appointment, evaluate the strength of your bone before placing dental implants, and personalize a wide variety of procedures so that they are as comfortable as they are successful.
